The Pretty Little Liars finale became the #1 most tweeted TV series telecast of Summer 2015 - and the #3 most tweeted cable TV series episode on record - amassing over 1.6 million tweets, accounting for 50% of all Twitter TV Tweet activity for the day. These over 1.6 million tweets were seen by a Twitter TV audience of 6.2 million unique users and generated over 68 million Twitter TV impressions. Moreover, the 12:00 - 8:00 p.m. favorite episode stunt leading into the finale accumulated a series record 4.5 million tweets, more than doubling its spring-finale marathon-day tally (2.2 million). Impressively, driven by the finale, Pretty Little Liars passed 3 million Twitter followers.

"Last night's Pretty Little Liars finale was a true Twitter triumph. ABC Family continues to innovate in how they encourage fan participation across social media, never content to let their social strategy stagnate. And it shows - the summer finale of 'Pretty Little Liars' shattered records by generating more tweets than ever, and not just during the episode itself. Before the finale even started yesterday, Pretty Little Liars fans had already posted more than two million tweets about the show, breaking previous all-day records. Pretty Little Liars still has one of, if not the most, active and engaged Twitter fandoms in existence." - Jenn Deering Davis, Editor-in-Chief, Union Metrics.
